Belfast International Airport understands Corporate Responsibility (CR) as its responsibilities to its employees, customers, suppliers, regulators, community and the environment. The senior management team supports the objectives and principles of CR and this policy will help to translate these into a common, consistent approach for everyone.
Standard of Conduct: We will conduct every aspect of our business by living our Vision and Values and by respecting the interests of our employees, customers and third parties.
Policy: By developing a policy for CSR and embedding that policy throughout the company, Belfast International Airport is showing its commitment to operating in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable way that is sensitive to the needs of those impacted by the business.
o Developing, valuing, safeguarding and engaging a workforce where there is mutual trust and respect in line with our Vision and Values
o Ensuring the customer is at the centre of all that we do
o Building strong, trust-based relationships which ensure business partners have the opportunity to benefit from their relationship with us
o Ensuring we are trusted partners of government and regulators and assist in delivering on economic and regional development
o Maintaining strong mutually beneficial relationships with the local community and education providers in particular, as outlined in our community and volunteering policy.
o Operating in an environmentally sustainable manner, in line with ISO14001, and continually striving to improve our impacts
While every employee has a role to play in our CSR policy, the senior management team has overall responsibility for its strategic direction.
BIA’s CSR committee will put in place an annual action plan showing our targeted programmes and initiatives. This will be updated on an on-going basis, reflecting business strategies and developments.
The committee will consist of employees who volunteer to play a role in BIA’s CSR programme.
The committee will produce a yearly report on the company’s CSR initiatives and campaigns.
Belfast International Airport recognises the importance of establishing and maintaining links with local schools and colleges.
We will therefore develop programmes with individual schools and colleges to suit their educational needs.
We recognise that our business activities have environmental consequences and we continuously review our environmental performance to seek to minimise and mitigate those effects.

Belfast International Airport has prepared a Round Two Noise Action Plan in accordance with the European Union Environmental Noise Directive (Directive 2002/49/EC) also known as the ‘END’.

This Noise Action Plan, which can be downloaded at the bottom of the page, aims to manage and where possible reduce the impact of noise arising from the airport operations during the period 2013 – 2018. It reflects our commitment to controlling any adverse effects of our operations and minimising their impact on the local community in which we operate. In respect of noise this means implementing industry best practice to limit and reduce, where necessary, the number of people affected by noise arising from our operations.
The Belfast International Airport Consultative Forum was established under Article 20(1) of the Airports (Northern Ireland) Order 1994, and follows Government guidelines for Airport Consultative Committees.
